The beer should have an AP based on brand:

Pabst AP-
Budweiser AP6
...
Sam Adams AP3
....
Guinness Str D
Name:  Matthew Forsyth
Club:  Errybody in the gettin tips
Where I play: basically I only show up for tourneys or when I'm on my way up to New Hampshire to visit my folks.  I live about 45 mins from both stores, to the south.

Guinness is your strength d? How about Unibroue or Dogfish 180?

I'm down for swapping beers with shots of something 140 proof.

Oh, you want to bring beer snobbery into our usual rules discussions?

But I'm thinking we'd all bring our own beer, it'd be an excuse to share beer brands if nothing else.

I would accept nothing less than Clown Shoes Vampire slayer as a Strength D weapon.

Haha... I was trying to keep it un-snobby.  But you're right, let's call guiness AP2.

I think he was basing his strengths on quality and not potency...and lets face it, Guinness is the best all around, perfect for everything, great against all comers, beer...and therefore is Str D.

So, among the beer snob elite (hi!) many might consider guinness a sophomore's beer.  It's good when you've moved on from bud light, sad when you've found the real stuff.

Told you, beer snobbery AND rules arguments!

I don't think 180 IPA exists, at least not yet.  But if you get me a small class of Sam Adams Utopia, I will let you win, flat out.

DaBoyz style beer hammer is you start with a blank table and at any point your getting shot at you can consume what ever beverage and then put the contain down where ever you wish. So you can give yourself a cover save or prevent another unit from firing.

Shot glass's were commonly used to give your own tank cover and be able to shoot.

This sounds awesome, and nothing against Guinness, but Allagash White is where it is at.
